Saturday October 26, 2013 was the last day of the 2013 SCRIBAL ADVANCE: GOD & SCRIBES. As anxious are we are to return to our homes and our families, it is difficult to leave this unique company of Scribes who gathered from around the country and cross the border from Canada. I left before the Chamber of the Scribe was dismissed because it was past my time of departure to drive home. But before I left I received an apostolic blessing from my spiritual mother Apostle Theresa Harvard Johnson. Apostle Johnson serves in dual roles in my life. As a member of Voices of Christ and a regional director for this ministry she is my leader and mentor and she also serves Watchman On walls International Fellowship as the apostolic covering who counsels and encourages me in this work.
So it was with great blessing that I received this apostolic blessing that set me in the new season that God has called me to and the new work that He has given me in Watchman On Walls and the Body of Christ. With Apostle Anthony Gladden, Apostle Johnson laid hands on me and released a prophetic decree over me and my family. God continues to honor me by sending people into my life who has spoken prophetically what God has declared and determined for me.
During the first anniversary for WOW both Apostle Gladden and Apostle Johnson spoke apostolic decrees over me and WOW revealing and confirming God’s will for this community that He has called me to established and bring forth in the earth.
But back to the SCRIBAL ADVANCE. During the afternoon THE CHAMBER OF THE SCRIBE was set for us to enter into the presence of Father in intercession and worship. THE CHAMBER OF THE SCRIBE was given to Apostle Johnson from Jeremiah 36:11-13. It is a set time at the end of Voices of Christ meetings where those in attendance are given the opportunity to receive healing, impartation and prophetic ministry. This sacred time is one of confession, repentance and healing. During THE CHAMBER OF THE SCRIBE we shared Communion, the sharing of the bread given as a prophetic expression of the broken body of Yeshua (Jesus) nailed to the cross as the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. And we shared the juice, the prophetic declaration of the poured out blood shed to cancel our sins and declare the New Covenant that we have through Yeshua.
I always leave these meeting resolved to do the will of my Father and pressing through for more of Yeshua in my life. The drive home was special as Father spoke to me concerning my next assignments in His kingdom. Truly I believe that every SCRIBE present experienced God. And truly we were GOD & SCRIBES.
Today is Friday October 25, 2013. I write this blog from a hotel in Metro Atlanta Georgia, my third time in Atlanta this year. I am attending the 2013 PROPHETIC SCRIBAL ADVANCE: GOD & SCRIBES that is being hosted by Apostle Theresa Harvard Johnson and Voices of Christ Literary Ministries International. The Advance is unlike any meeting or gathering or conference that I have ever attended. Apostle Johnson is intentional in keeping it a different type of experience. There is no announcement of speakers, listing of courses and times announced. The people who gather come to receive an impartation from Holy Spirit, to be refreshed in His presence and receive His anointing that destroys yokes and releases the oil of joy. And because of Apostle Johnson sensitivity to Holy Spirit each Scribal Advance is different from the last one.
Since Wednesday Holy Spirit has been moving in such a creative way in this advance. Apostle Theresa Johnson has been led in these sessions to allow the attendees to share more dialogue and the dialogue has been rich, varied and unique. There has been a greater thrust of activating SCRIBES and giving them more practical principles to establish their SCRIBAL MINISTRIES.
Because VOICES OF CHRIST is a ministry of inner healing Holy Spirit always moves among the company to bring inner healing and this ADVANCE was no different. Healing has been manifested in many who are in the gathering and we can only anticipate what will take place on tomorrow in the CHAMBER OF THE SCRIBE, a time of personal prophetic ministry.
Today during the afternoon session a historical encounter commenced in the SCRIBAL ADVANCE. I was given the opportunity to preach a message to the SCRIBES. Although I taught in the April SCRIBAL ADVANCE this time I was called to preach. I preached on UNITY from Psalms 133. There was so much freedom and attentiveness from those who were in attendance and when I concluded the message and sat down I was shocked to see that I preached for seven five minutes! All I can say is WOW! This has been a seasons of first for me. Last Saturday I taught at the East New Hope Church in Danville Va at their first Men’s Conference. In August I taught for the first time in the state of Maryland at the HE MEN’S CONFERENCE hosted by Apostle Oliver Reid. I love being a part of history and making history. To God be all the glory. So today was another day of first for me.
And so once again God has moved in a SCRIBAL ADVANCE and the SCRIBES are ADVANCING. This has a very unique gathering. Apostle Johnson spoke that every SCRIBE gathered is a General being called to ADVANCE the SCRIBAL ANOINTING in their region. The impact in the kingdom In these last three days has been strategic and succinct. Greater is ahead for this unique company of SCRIBES & GOD. To Him our God is praise, glory and adoration.
I have created a new word from an old word. If you noticed in the title heading I used the word Glorymath. That’s what I was encountering since I left Atlanta on Saturday April 27, 2013 after attending the Scribal Advance hosted by Voices of Christ International Literary Ministries (http://www.voicesofchristcom). My word glorymath is derived from the word aftermath. Aftermath is a word that describes the negative effect that follows a very disastrous turn of events. Glorymath, the word that I have created describes the GLORY effect of an encounter with God. When Moses came down off the mountain after being with God for forty days the glory of God shined on his face, altering his very appearance. After Moses came out of the glory he was experiencing glorymath (my word, not Moses). I may not use this word anymore after writing this article so just permit me to call what I have been experiencing glorymath.
I left the Advance to drive back to Atlanta to catch my plane and while waiting for my flight I came upon one of the airports attendant. She was faithfully doing her job of removing the garbage from the section that I was seating in. When she walked by me she mentioned that her back was hurting. I am not sure why she mentioned that to me but I immediately I decreed that her back be healed and she agreed.
I got on the plane and greeted the passenger who was seated next to me. She returned the greeting and I sat down. Before we departed a young man sat down next to me. I greeted him and he returned the greeting. As the plane took off we began to talk. Now I have a confession to make. I don’t normally talk to the passengers that are seated with me. I am usually uncomfortable in my seat assignment and just enduring the flight waiting until I reach my destination. But again the glory from the Advance was moving me to exercise grace. The young man who I was speaking with asked me about my trip to Atlanta and I shared with him the Advance and my teaching assignment. His questions about the Advance and my writing encouraged the lady on my other side to also start asking me about my writings and books.
And then the lady asked me to share a word with her. Earlier before the plane took off she told me about her fright of flying. So I shared with her Romans 8:28 and I resumed talking with the young man. We were talking about religion and the decline of religion in America. When suddenly Holy Spirit said to me that the lady needed prayer and not a verse of Scripture. I excused myself from the young man and asked the lady did she mind if I pray with her. She replied, “That’s what I wanted you to do.” I started to pray and Holy Spirit moved to the point of causing her to overcome her fear for the rest of the flight.
When I was completed praying the young man said something about his missionary journey and when I asked him about that I discovered that he was a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints, known to many of us as the Mormons. He asked me had I read the Book of the Mormons and I informed him that I had read portions of it last fall when I thought we may have a Mormon president. I then saw an opening to share Jesus Christ which I did and to my shock this young’s man testimony was identical to my testimony. His testimony was one of a man who knew the Lord and yet I was not deceived by his words but I heard Holy Spirit in his words. And then I remembered hearing Rick Joyner, president of Morning Star Ministries, say that the Mormons were not the cult that many Christians believed them to be, but they were in fact a part of the Body of Christ who had some bad doctrine and teaching in their church from the eighteenth century.
This flight was one of the best flight that I ever encountered. It was Glorymath.
I stand as a witness that God will meet you when you press to the place that He is calling you to. I was sent by God to Atlanta Georgia for the Prophetic Scribal Advance that took place last week. The advance started on Wednesday April 24, 2013 and concluded on Saturday April 27, 2013. I hope that the word Advance doesn’t throw you into confusion. Apostle Theresa Johnson is always very intentional in using the language that Holy Spirit speaks to her and so by His leading she has been given the term advance in place of the word conference which is overplayed in my opinion.
The advance was four days of Worship, saturating ourselves in the sweet presence of the Lord and establishing a place for Him to come in and dwell among us. It is the intent of God to be with His people and He delights to see His priests making a place for Him to come in and abide with us.
The advance was four days of Impartation where the Word of the Lord was freely given and freely received. Through the apostolic and prophetic release given through the teaching of the anointed company of men and women of God who served by releasing the Word I received more instructions regarding the vision of two ministries that the Lord has entrusted to me as well as more books to write. (Sometime I can hear in my spirit the laughter of the Lord as He gives me more to write and I can’t keep up with. LOL). But that’s my God, He’s always operating above what I can think or do (Ephesians 2:20).
It was four days of fellowship and communion with a great host of people from around the country. All ministers in the kingdom, Scribes instructed in heaven and many five fold gifts given to the Body for full edification and unity. Apostle Theresa Johnson is doing a great work and God is using her in a mighty way to release the Scribal Anointing in the earth. And her family; husband Leonard and their children are treasures in the kingdom. There is a grace over their family that is releasing life in the Atlanta region.
I wanted to tell yo about how the Lord met me on the Delta flight from North Carolina to Atlanta. I was reading my latest book A TIME TO PROSPER by Chuck Pierce and Robert Heidler. I was reading on page 10 and the Scriptural passage on that page was Psalms 139:13-16. When I got to the sixteenth verse I started to read about the book that God had written with all of my days in it. And I had to lay the book A TIME TO PROSPER down because Holy Spirit said it’s time to learn more from this verse. And what a lesson He gave me.
Later during the advance one of the teachers, Apostle Anthony Gladden taught from Psalms 40 which correspond with Psalms 139 and Holy Spirit enlarged the revelation that I was receiving from Him. And as I learned from Psalms 139:16, A passage that I have read numerous times Holy Spirit spoke that I was to share this with the congregation, New Mine Creek Church in Blairs Va, on Sunday. Which I did and I believe that God’s people received the impartation that was on this word.
What I want to leave with you today is when you press your way to the place where God is sending you He will begin to meet you on the way as You are going. Before I got to Atlanta God met me and imparted in me a rich word. And then for four days He gave me more and more, that’s called grace.
The enemy tried to ruin it by attempting to injure me before I left for Atlanta but I overcame the enemy and received all that God had for me, that’s called Favor. God will give you favor in the presence of your enemies. I know that you probably want to know the Word that Holy Spirit gave me on the plane but I can’t give it all to you at this time but it is coming in great measure. I can give you this though. God has written a Book with all of your life in it and it is your assignment to find the book and live in it. God’s script for your life is better than any story you can write for your own life.
The next time I write a post I must tell you about the extraordinary encounters I had on the plane coming home on Saturday.
